  • The Spaniard had hoped to win over his compatriot this summer

Sanchez has won 88 caps for Colombia and played in the Premier League for Aston Villa between 2014 and 2016.

The Hammers found a unique way to announce the signing of Perez as they used their big screens at the London Stadium to unveil the player.

However, while back on loan at former club Deportivo last season, the 29-year-old was responsible for creating a thoroughly impressive 79 chances for his teammates in 35 La Liga appearances, leaving him second only to Lionel Messi (87) in that regard.

Meanwhile, the Gunners will be looking to be one of the main contenders for a top-four finish next season as they bid to try and break back into the Champions League spots for next term.

Wilshere - who also made the move from north to east London this summer - had posted an Instagram post before any confirmation from either club, which showed Perez in a West Ham kit, most likely in the changing rooms at the Hammers training facilities.

Attorneys for Mr Collins said in a statement that they will "mount a vigorous defence to clear his good name". Price resigned as health secretary under criticism for taking pricey charter flights at taxpayers' expense.

'I'd like to thank all of the people, the whole club, for having me'.

'I wish you all the best for the future and I hope you can go and achieve great things'.

Perez becomes the eighth player to join West Ham ahead of the 2018-19 season, and he will compete with fellow new signing Andriy Yarmolenko for a place in Manuel Pellegrini's starting line-up.

West Ham United have landed the signature of Colombia worldwide Carlos Sanchez.

Director of Football Mario Husillos has expressed his happiness of landing the Spaniard saying he is very experienced and will help West Ham score goals and be creative up front.
